Ovulation Induction

In a normal menstrual cycle, an egg grows, develops, and matures to the point of its release, which is called ovulation. This process depends on a delicate balance of hormones and other factors that, if not produced in the right way, can lead to infertility. In ovulation induction, patients are treated at MCFWH with hormone medications or fertility drugs to improve the chances of ovulation. These medications stimulate inactive or under-producing ovaries to produce a mature egg and release it, so it may be fertilized.
